  1. Bergevins moves and lack of moves in the last two years have been disappointing. Now he calls up someone who has 2 goals in the AHL to try and help the big club score.
  2. He got 4th line minutes again last night with only 11:11. My guess is that Therrien will make him another healthy scratch to make room for Moen and Bourque.
  3. But will he get more than 4th line minutes?
  4. So we're about to lose the "sweepstakes" because Therrien refuses to play him anymore than 4th line minutes.
  5. If he was so hurt that he couldn't even shoot the puck then that's just as bad as him coasting through the playoffs. Players should be able to know the point where they're so hurt that they're also hurting the team.
  6. He's too busy thinking about that big contract coming his way this summer.
  7. You guys may be proud of the Habs this season but I'm definitely not. They mailed it in the second they clinched a playoff spot. Problems arose from the net out and even to the coaches where they made questionable decisions all over the place. Then the playoffs came around and they tried to goon it up and turn the series into a media war rather than focus on their own game. Then injuries started rolling in and the complete lack of depth in this organization made its appearance. Sure they made progress from last season and won the division this season but they blew it when it counted.
  8. So how many suspensions for the Habs after last night? Plus the line brawl started by Whites two-handed slash.
  9. That's smart. Way to kill any potential momentum to start the game.
  10. Yes, Markov, Alfredsson is the guy on Ottawa you want to give extra room in front of Price.
  11. I'm pretty impressed with his play so far in Montreal. I feel kind of left out that he didn't look anywhere close to this in Hamilton.
  12. I'm guessing that's to help ensure a Habs/Leafs match up in the first round.
  13. I know this is becoming off topic but he was playing pretty well with Geoffrion and Engqvist. It's when he wasn't playing with both of those players it started to become a problem as he relied too much on them for his game to stay at that level of play. I honestly don't even know what's going on anymore. I just want a new team.
  14. Nattinen has been a healthy scratch/injured for most of the season it seems and he hasn't shown much in the last 2 years. Vail could possibly be in contention for that 3rd line role when it opens up if he's given a larger role with the Bulldogs next season. I just noticed Vail just turned 19 years old in March so he'll likely be too far behind to fight for a spot with Bournival.
  15. He seems more of a hard worker than a skilled type of player. He'll skate hard, battle for pucks along the boards, and occasionally block shots. He's shown some flashes of skill here and there but it's not consistent. I see him spending another year or two in Hamilton with a few short call-ups before getting a legitimate chance in Montreal.
  16. In my opinion Pateryn has been the Bulldogs best defenceman this season.
  17. I'd give him two or three years. This is a player who's been a consistent goal scorer throughout his career and that's something the team definitely needs. There's no way a UFA is going to sign a one year deal unless it has a massive value.
  18. His point totals are a reflection of his overall game this season. This is a player I was hoping would stand out from the rest in a good way but it just isn't happening. Maybe next season I guess?
  19. I've just been saying what I see and what I think of things. It may seem like I'm hard on the guys in Hamilton but it's just frustrating seeing the terrible coaching with Lefebvre. I've been attending Bulldogs games for the 17 years they've been here and this is the first season where I have not seen any improvement from almost every player. This is supposed to be a major developmental stage for prospects but it just isn't happening with this coaching staff.
  20. Well, it's true. Tinordi was struggling reading plays, was weak on the puck, and had trouble timing his hits to the point where he was throwing himself out of the play. Beaulieu is probably the most frustrating player to watch in Hamilton. Here's someone that has a pretty good shot and can skate with the puck very well through the neutral zone but he has no vision as to what he needs to do with the puck once he gets to the offensive zone. It's been the same problem with him all season long and I'm not sure why the coaches aren't helping him out with this because it's always resulting in the other team gaining possession of the puck. Point or no points, it's a glaring problem that hasn't been fixed through 62 games. Now he's been called up to likely play ahead of Kaberle which doesn't make sense considering where the Habs are in the standings.
  21. I don't understand these call-ups at all. Beaulieu has been by far the worst regular defenceman in Hamilton. He can skate with the puck but once he gets to the other teams blue line he has no idea what to do with it so he'll either pass it to the other team or just lose it along the boards. He doesn't dump it, he doesn't pass it, he just gives it away time after time. He also tends to watch plays rather than react to plays in his own end. It's been like this all season in Hamilton.
  22. Ryder isn't going to sign a one or two year deal after being forced to sign nothing but one year deals with Gainey for the first half of his career.
